A decade after fleeing for his life, a man is pulled back to Argentina by an undying love.
It was the most obvious thing in the world that I�d follow her wherever she went. I always had.
In 1976, Tom�s Oriilla is a medical student in Buenos Aires, where he�s moved in hopes of reuniting with Isabel, a childhood crush. But the reckless passion that has always drawn him is leading Isabel ever deeper into the ranks of young insurgents fighting an increasingly oppressive regime. As its thuggish milicos begin to disappear more and more people like her, she presents Tom�s with a way to prove himself. As always, he�ll do anything for Isabel. But what exactly is he proving, and at what cost to them both?
It will be years before a summons back arrives for Tom�s, now living as Thomas Shore in New York. But it isn�t a homecoming that awaits him so much as an odyssey into the past, an encounter with the ghosts that lurk there, and a reckoning with the fatal gap between who he�s become and who he once aspired to be. Raising profound questions about the sometimes impossible choices we make in the name of love, Hades, Argentina is a gripping, brilliantly narrated literary debut.
